Here's a short documentary about TED's (ted.com) Open Translation Project - thousands of volunteers around the world who translate TEDTalks' subtitles.

If there are still many untranslated talks for your language at ted.com, maybe it's time to sign up to translate and/or review

Thank you TED! Jul 3, 2012

Thank you Krystian!

I watched the video and decided to open an account for my team.

Howver, it would be intersting to have a guide like "How to start translating" or "first time translator" in order to give the translator the possibility to start without searching where to find information.

Did I miss this guide? you could tell me...

Thank you again, your post triggered my interest to participate finally to this honorable effort!


Best regards,

Oussama

thank you! Jul 4, 2012

Thank you for pointing out this great initiative!
I love TED talks (I use them often for my simultaneous interpreting practises) and I think it's a good opportunity for translators who are starting now!

The link to the video has changed. This is the current link:

I've also organized an effort to translate the video. There are captions in many languages. If you're experienced in subtitling, have a reviewing partner, and want to translate the subtitles into a language that you can't see in the list, please contact me through a private message.
